Re: Football: Indian National Team news ...

Meanwhile, India stayed at #102 in the February rankings that came out late last week. We are 14th in Asian rankings. We need to win the away match at KGZ to have a chance to finish in the world top-85 and be one of the 12 seeds at the AFC Championships (Jan 2019). There is a logjam of 4-5 teams who...

Re: Football: Indian National Team news ...

Good news. We will have our Super Cup that includes teams from both the I-League and the ISL. ISL, I-League teams to play in AIFF Super Cup 16 teams. The top six from each league plus 4 more who play a qualifying tournament between the leagues will make it into the knockout event. I think this will ...

Re: $50K(+H) Chennai Challenger, 12-18 Feb. 2018

Hey, Indians being in both finals made this tournament worthwhile, though things looked pretty bad after the first couple of rounds. Hope Yuki wins the final and completes a comeback into the top-100 that took quite a while to do. So glad for him. And congrats go to Vishnu and Balaji.

Re: Football: Indian National Team news ...

While I've been in India in the past couple of months (for a week each both months), I was confused about the ISL and I-League going on simultaneously. Doesn't that defeat the purpose somewhat? Shouldn't the best I-League players be picked up to play the ISL? With both occurring simultaneously, won...

Re: Misc. news about Indian hockey

And it looks more and more like the new coach has certainly not messed things up, and perhaps has been doing a good job. First time in a long time (or ever!) that I remember ssp talking about any structure in our game. Especially on defense - and that is usually what good coaches do (and can do) fir...

Re: Misc. news about Indian hockey

India-Japan hockey, of course, began at the 1932 Olympics with an 18-0 win for India :-) ! These days, it is rarer to see those scores, and 6-0 is terrific. (In 1932, only 3 teams participated in the Olympics, and Japan won the silver; the US won bronze, although it lost both its matches, including...

Re: ITF junior/ Pro career ranking comparisions/ co-relation

By the way, :Offtopic: , does the word co-relation really exist? It possibly does exist, but I am unsure if it means exactly the same as correlation. It's not there in all dictionaries. Should I change the title to "correlation"? But then again, it is a statistical concept and we are not really talk...

Re: Misc. news about Indian hockey

However, we do generally play better against Asian countries (except Pakistan in the past although we seem to have their measure now). Still, a 6-0 win was rare. It was usually of the 4-2 or 3-1 variety, against Japan. That is my feeling. This is the kind of domination from a team at a higher level...

Alright, Yuki!!! I was away at a conference and am at a symposium that I am organizing. Could only look at final scores, for the last few days. This makes my day!! Beautiful comeback after that miserable start.

Re: Tata Open Maharashtra 2018

Yeah, a poor end. I hoped for at least one to be in the QF. But that is tennis. Good days and bad days happen. It's a long year that is starting. Too early to feel too down. Hope they will all stay injury-free, and will get their breaks along the way soon. Jay
